Take a Flight Through Middle Earth

Tourism NZ

In this game, you take control of a bird flying high over a painterly blotch of sea. As you soar around the blank canvas, the dramatic scenery of New Zealand paints itself below you. Finding the collectable cards scattered around the islands adds additional birds to your flock.

You'll also come across other players from around the world, cruising through the skies with their own flocks. You can interact with them as you complete your quest of visiting four iconic Hobbit filming locations to earn the key to Lonely Mountain. There you'll be rewarded with exclusive video content from Weta, creators of the film.

The site pushes the limits of HTML5 with advanced canvas drawing techniques, video integration, and seamless multiplayer via websockets.
